My main desktop computer is set to dual-boot Linux and Windows XP Professional. I have the Linux OS set up to sync time with an internet time service. When I boot the WinXP OS, the time consistently shows four hours late -- as though it's interpreting the system clock to be on UTC (I'm actually in the US EDT zone).
Does Windows have a function, someplace, that can be told whether the system clock is set to UTC or to local time?
Or is there some other possible explanation for this consistent error?
